New ‘Addams Family’ musical comedy at Sondheim theater
A new musical comedy, “The Addams Family,” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center’s Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts.
“The Addams Family” features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met.
And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife Morticia.
Everything will change for the family on the night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
The smash-hit musical comedy brings to spooky and spectacular life: the darkly delirious world of Gomez, all mad impetuosity; Morticia, equal parts fire and ice; Uncle Fester, restless and romantic; Grandma; Wednesday, 18 years old and finally feeling what it means to be a woman; Pugsley, for whom immediate gratification can’t come soon enough; and, of course, Lurch — a family that’s quite shockingly and endearingly.
The performance is part of the 2013-14 Sondheim Center Artist Series: Continuing the Momentum.
